We will park at the Cragmoor Connector Trailhead in Boulder and ascend Bear Peak and it's neighbor S. Boulder Peak, then descend back to the trailhead via Shadow Canyon to make a nice loop hike.

Please note that while this is a foothills hike, it's very steep with over 3,000 ft. of elevation gain. It's a great way to burn off those extra Thanksgiving pounds, but be ready to work!

Be ready for icy trails, possibly the whole 7.5 miles (this has happened to me in winter). This trail can turn into a solid sheet of ice depending on conditions. Foot traction required, poles recommended.

Please leave dogs at home. CMC only allows dogs on designated doggie hikes.

*This is a Bobcat trip. The Bobcats mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, especially “B Difficult” and “C” hikes and Difficult Snowshoes, for our mostly age-50+ constituents.  Although we have members, our trips are non-exclusive.  We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership. To join our mailing list, write or call CMC Membership Services at: or (303) 279-3080.


We will stop in Boulder at Half Fast Subs for a bite to eat after the hike. If you don't plan to come to lunch, please be ready to drive separately.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
